Re: What's up with being Hacked?

This new BBS is a great improvement.

Now all we need is for someone to hack the wiki, so that it too can have a mega upgrade. :twisted:

There was a mistake in the release date - it said July sometime. I have changed it to December 8 and made a small change to the description so it is no longer the longest one - hope that's correct and ok, but feel free to edit.

The basic idea behind keeping the requirements as seperate as possible from the general mission info is that a user may not want to see the requirements, only the name of the mission with perhaps some basic description. Knowing the requirements for a mission is in itself a spoiler, and some people ...

Rather than having the "Req's" links, why not make the Mission links point to where the "Req's" point to at the moment (ie. to the info further down the page about each mission)? The link to any wiki page about the mission can be from down there (or if authors want optionally in the Description colu...

It's maik who created that page and I found it useful myself. I wanted to install all OXP missions in G1 while I was in G1 so I just sorted on "Start". Now I'm in G2, I will do the same again. With the old page, I'd have to read through the whole thing.

Anyway, as far as compatibility goes, things are pretty unclear (or hidden) - that column is not really that obvious to the new person, Feedback like this is very helpful as we need to convey information in a clear and useful manner. I wonder if it would be possible to colour the row based on compa...

Strange that users are not worried about compatibility when downloading OXPs - maybe there is confusion in this area probably not helped by the message on the Oolite download page about Oolite versions. Maybe users are just assuming that anything in the table must be compatible. Anyway given this in...

One could argue that the OXPs that have already had the blank changed to Y are probably the OXPs that the majority of people are using. Ones that have remained blank for all this time are likely ones that few people are using and not to the extent that they feel it's worth the effort to update the w...

That is effectively what the main table would become, but these OXPs (which we must remember are not incompatible, just unchecked for compatibility for a long period of time) are still kept easily accessible in the page linked from the main OXP list. So if someone does want to test them and say they...

When Oolite 1.75 comes out, rather than just blanking the Compatibility column, I would suggest we do the following: 1. Create table called Long Term Unknown Compatibility OXPs or similar. 2. Put in it all the OXPs that are currently blank (ie. currently unknown compatibility OXPs). 3. Move this tab...

I've moved the OXPs that are marked as not working to the OXPs with Problems table. Is Localhero still being developed? If so, it could be put in the Work in Progress table.

I think it adds nice flavour. You could of course expand the concept so that the place really is worth visiting, maybe several times. For example: - unique main station - some equipment and/or ship to buy/obtain via mission(s) that is not available elsewhere One of the things in the description is ...
